I use Mutt. When I have postponed messages, and press 'm', I get a question
at the bottom of the window: "Recall postponed message?" with suggested
answers 'yes' and 'no'. If I don't want to dispose of the postponed messages,
I answer 'n' and I can continue with composing a new message. If you don't
get the Recall... question there is a config issue in you Mutt.
